  • Thanks every one i simply was looking for the Ubuntu equivalent of the htdocs folder in windows. – George Udosen Oct 14 '15 at 12:54

The default document root for Apache is /var/www/ (before Ubuntu 14.04) or /var/www/html/ (Ubuntu 14.04 and later).

See the file /usr/share/doc/apache2/README.Debian.gz for some explanation on how the Apache configuration on Ubuntu is done.

    Just for completeness sake, 13.10 was the first release to have apache2.4 by default. Thus it's /var/www/html/ for 13.10 as well. It doesn't really matter, since 13.10 has long been unsupported. – Dan Oct 14 '15 at 14:09
